Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I joined as a solo traveler and had my apprehensions; I will say that they don’t introduce you to others in the group, but rather invite you into the establishment and have you remain in each place for an hour before moving on to the next. I’m blessed to be able to talk to new people and put myself out there, so I met a few amazing girls who invited me into their group and we had such a great night with some new friendships along the way! I am so glad I did the pub crawl, the silent disco was my favorite part, we ended it at the nightclub and that was a great dancing experience albeit the club was crowded (just a heads up, that’s any club though really, all you need is your wits about you and you’ll be fine). This is definitely not a crawl for everyone, but if you understand it for what it was set up to do and if you’re willing to put yourself out there, you’re almost guaranteed to have a good time.

OMG we had such a great time! Little bit skeptical to start with. I'm in my 50's with my daughter and friend early 20's. Lennon took us round the pubs, he clearly loved his job! He made us feel welcome and made sure we were okay all the way round. We had a half Guinness, 3 free shots included plus discounted drinks. Met Holeigh who was lovely. Silent Disco was so much fun, no silent singing there with such great music🤣 Then last place was a nightclub, great vibe. So all in all, I would recommend this pub crawl 100%

Niamh made sure everyone knew what was happening and kept the vibes going! Highly recommend this crawl! We went on a Saturday night and it was busy everywhere. They keep you up to speed and leave no man behind.

It was a great experience with a great variety of different bars and clubs. The free drinks made it even better. The guides (I’d remember their names, but like I said, free drinks lol) were very nice and managed to wrangle the group from place to place with no problems. Definitely going to do it again!

My husband and I had a great time on this pub crawl. The pubs visited were not the usual tourist pubs, lots of locals. Each had great music and plenty of time at pub before heading to next venue. Shots at each plus discounted drinks were a bonus. Definitely recommend this experience.

We were told when we met with the organiser that there could be around 100 people for the crawl and then as there were so many were then split into smaller groups but still 30/40 people in each group. We were taken to the 1st pub of which there were 4 and given a choice of one drink or a shot or money off certain beers. Once in the pubs because the groups were so large there was no interaction whatsoever we had been on other pub crawls in different cities and they were not like this one, if you like being in a massive group then you may enjoy this but it wasn't for us we like having a chat with other guests etc this is not possible on this tour. 2nd pub was very cramped TV screens everywhere we decided we had seen enough the shots were okay very very small.

Hi Daisy. Thanks for the feedback, and sorry that the Pub Crawl was not what you were expecting. To clarify a few things though, yes we have our own dedicated bar at the meeting point just for pub crawlers to meet and interact before we break into smaller groups for the next 2 pubs, before coming back together for the final 2 venues. There was 31 people in your group on the night. This is actually standard size for a Pub crawl group, even a little smaller than what you'd find on well established Pub Crawls of this kind in most capital cities. As for TV screens at second pub, this was due to the Rugby World Cup in which Ireland was participating....it was a big deal, and practically every pub in Dublin (and the country) will have been showing it at that time. It's a pity you didn't stay to experience the Pub Crawl properly beyond the second pub, but it seems you had different expectations, wanting a small group of people in quiet pubs where you can chat, etc. Those kinds of 'Pub tours' do exist but that's not us, we're a Pub Crawl, as clearly described in the description on the profile you booked.....Free drinks, free shots, drink discounts, skip the line VIP entry to late bars and the Nightclub etc...it's a party crawl, and we even make the point in description that this isn't a walking tour of quaint traditional pubs, and not to book if that's what you're looking for; so I don't know how much more we could have done for you and your particular expectations, despite all the info to the contrary.

This was an extremely disappointing night out on my birthday. There was no attempt by James the guide to introduce the group or begin to form any kind of group connections. Other than handing out drink cards and telling us what time we were leaving he did nothing as a guide. If I'd had the names of the pubs I could have done a better job myself of attempting to form some kind of connection with the group. Some of the door security were unnecessarily aggressive and over the top when clearly we were part of the party with bands on our wrists. At 15 Euro per head this tour is over priced and very disappointing. DO NOT waste your money people, walking around Temple Bar yourself. Never again!

Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the experience. I have consulted the guide you've mentioned as your evaluation of him is totally at odds with the usual high praise and positive feedback he earns. He's a great guy, and a great guide too, though he did mention that he is not so used to connecting with a particularly boisterous group - though it's something he will master with experience, no doubt - and he mentioned that door staff at some of the venues needed to address some behavioural issues among the group. For the record, we've been working with our venue partners for over a decade, they're our colleagues and there is long established mutual respect there; venue staff are never "aggressive or over the top", to use your own words, with our mutual patrons, it's not in their interest to be, though it is there prerogative and their duty to act appropriately when warranted, and that applies to groups whether on the Pub Crawl or not. Also, to clarify, the Pub Crawl is €14, not €15 as you've claimed. For that, you get a welcome glass of Guinness, 3 free quality shots, exclusive drink specials and discounts across 20+ drinks (average saving €2.85 per drink), and skip the lines free entry to all venues, including late bars and the best Nightclub in the city (saving €22 on entrance fees alone)....there is absolutely no way you can do all of that on your own vs the crawl and save money as you've suggested...a literal impossibility. Furthermore, of the 5 venues, just 2 are in the Temple Bar quarter....we include three nightlife districts on the crawl.
